Happy Easter from Nursery!

This week in Nursery we have been learning to play and explore, we have been learning to understand and talk about growth and we have been learning to count objects accurately and recognise numbers.

As part of science week, we have been consolidating our knowledge of growth and we have been identifying signs of growth in our environment.


Through our play this week, we have been consolidating our ability to explore and engage in open ended activities. We have been developing our ability to play together in a group and take on active roles in our play.

In phonics, Miss Pounder’s group have been listening carefully to initial phonemes in words and we have been developing our oral blending and segmenting skills. This week we have been practising writing the graphemes, f, l, and the digraph ff. We learnt the tricky word ‘she’ this week.

Mrs Edgar’s group have also been listening carefully to initial letter sounds in words and developing their oral blending and segmenting skills. We really enjoyed looking inside our sound bag and identifying words that begin with the same phonemes.

Mrs Dean’s phonics group have been developing their understanding of alliteration and they have been listening carefully to how different sounds are articulated. We really enjoyed listening and remembering sounds in Mrs Dean’s box and making silly soup that was silly!

Here is an update on our magic beans. They are ready to be planted outside. We will be planting them in our outdoor area and we look forward to watching them grow!


Here is an update on our frog spawn. They have now grown into tadpoles and we have put them in our outside pond area. We will be watching their progress carefully.


At the beginning of the week we learnt about the Easter story and we talked about why we celebrate Easter. On Thursday we walked to the church and we took part in a special Easter service. We really enjoyed singing Easter songs and performing in front of our parents and carers. We certainly were ‘the best that we could be!’ When we were in the church we spotted Jesus on the cross, just like in the Easter story.


It has been a very busy week in Nursery and we have been making our best better to be the best that we can be!


Keep checking Nursery’s webpage and the academy’s Twitter page to find out what we have been getting up to!

We hope you all have a fantastic Easter break and we look forward to coming back in the Summer term to make our best even better.
